Very true.
There are easier ways to catch fish, but none better than fly fishing.
There are easier vehicles to own, but none better than a Land Rover.

I was up in Alaska in August targeting silvers too. Lotsa fun. Pretty much catching rather than fishing. Just the way I like it.

You've got that right. I sound spoiled, but it's too easy! Great fighters though. Where did you go? I was in Cordova on the Tsiu River....

That's the best way anyone could ever put it.

Shit - I could buy a Defender!!!!
For sure. I've been collecting for years, and finally have an arsenal of equipment.

I was on the Kvichak River. World's largest Sockeye run and largest rainbow trout. The silver run was quite good too. It was a bit like the movie "Groundhog Day" though. Same thing for 7 days straight. Fish,eat,sleep,fish.......there are worse things in the world however.

Exactly the way my 7 days went. The Tsiu was full of Silvers and a few Pinks. I'd like to hit the Situk during the chrome run. They get monstrous there.... Alaska is great, but far from my favorite. At least Yakutat and Cordova, that is.

Sweet! I knew there had to be some fly guys on this forum. I am a fly fishing guide on the skeena river for steelhead and salmon. And use the 110 for towing the jet boat.

That... Is... Incredible.

I fished a wild trophy stream this afternoon. Ran out of 4x flouro, and had to go to 6x (all I had with me.) needless to say, I got taken to school by the big bows. Landed 3 over 20", and broken off by 12 or so. Half of those break offs were 25"+ fish, and this creek in no wider than a two lane road.

Thanks for this thread. I love fishing (not with flies) and have been looking for places with big fish. Around Knoxville / Norris we get 12-14" often. The mountains are all chub. I'd love to catch a 20"+ fish!

Well, this isn't fly fishing but we caught our first monster fish from the shore in apalachicola. The fight took 15 minutes in freezing temps. We were quite shocked when my little bro finally beached the fish!

Nice red! Makes me wish I'd have gotten down to the Gulf to fish this year. Where are you staying down there?

Wow! That is a lot bigger than those brook trout I used to catch in the Chattahoochee. That is ridiculous.

Oh yeah.... Driving it tomorrow up there, too. Loving the TD5, Incredible fuel economy. The truck is all I hoped for, and then some. A guy GOT OUT of his car at a stop light today, to come ask me about it... IN TRAFFIC. Lol

It's great.
